About Cricket Betting Online and Offline

Indeed there has been tremendous scandal in recent times with regards to cricket betting online and offline. The Hansie Cronje saga (erstwhile captain of the Proteas) rocked the cricketing world and indeed resulted in a massive ICC investigation into allegations of match-fixing and spread betting. Cricket recovered somewhat from the scandals involving former players and attempted to clean up its act. Recently, the Pakistani cricket board announced a purging of its former players following corruption charges against two star players. India and Australia alike have dealt with issues of corruption and by and large the stage has been set for a re-launch of cricket with online betting. Cricket ranks among the favourite of betting sports online as it encompasses so many possibilities that punters find it difficult not to place bets on cricket matches.

There are multiple formats of cricket to bet on. These include One Day International (ODI) cricket comprising 50 over games, T20 Matches comprising 20 over games and of course Test Match Cricket comprising 2 innings per team. The latter category is the variant of cricket most loved by purists of the game. Punters are fixated by the ongoing battle between bat and ball in the Test Arena. Cricket fans literally have 3 versions of the same game to enjoy. For the avid fan or sports bettor looking for a fast and furious game with quick results and betting selections, then T20s and ODIs are the order of the day. For cricket historians, legends of the game and true enthusiasts, then nothing tops Test cricket and scores of betting selections available in this arena.
